During yesterday’s PMQs the PM declared there is no way she would call for a second referendum on Brexit. The UK has made its decision. However, new polling figures suggest the nation has changed its voting intentions, with Remain winning by a huge margin.
The findings were published in an academic-led report by research bodies NatCen and The UK in a Changing Europe. 2,048 subjects were interviewed between June 7 and July 8.
Polling expert, John Curtice, authored the findings, and he added a note of caution to the results. He indicated that the people surveyed has originally voted 53 per cent for Remain, which didn’t reflect the 52-48 split in favour of Leave during the 2016 vote.
He said: “Nevertheless, this still means that there has apparently been a six-point swing from Leave to Remain, larger than that registered by any of our previous rounds of interviewing, and a figure that would seemingly point to a 54 percent (Remain) vote in any second referendum held now.”
Dominic Raab, Brexit Sec, is to confront Michael Barnier over his remarks about the PM Chequers plan. He described the blueprint as “dead,” increasing the likelihood of a no-deal Brexit.
